    You are asking some interesting questions there, but I'm not sure any of us have the experience to answer them! My guess would be that the bolt pattern on the gearbox and the mounting points will be key. In some cars the TCU and the ECU are combined - I'm not sure about your car or the donor car, but that might also confuse the issues of installation?

    Happy to help where required, I can perform the following dash programming services (Hi-vis VR-4 dash clusters only!); Adjust the scaling of the gearbox signal This changes what speed the dash sees, exactly what a speedo converter does. Odometer and trip values are left the same, but the speedometer and how much the odometer and trip counters increment is then changed to MPH or KPH. Adjust the needle scaling For those who want to fit a 240, 260 or a 280 dash fascia, this just adjusts...

    I'd agree with Nev - missfires are often coil packs now, but start with the easy/cheap basics! Good luck.

    As Garry says - if the converter is on the gearbox you need to go downwards from the throttle body area to find the sensor/plug/loom on the top of the gearbox. The one in the photo you referred to is definitely one that plugs in to the top of the gearbox. If you find it then I'd thoroughly recommend removing it so the car reads in km/h again then see Jay foxdie to reprogramme your speedo.

    Have fun! Check for rust and treat ASAP would be my only initial advice! Hope you continue to grin. :thumbsup:

    You don't want the plug gaps to be 1.1 in the VR4. Those sound like N/A V6 plugs. You should consider the flashy dash method of code reading - it's generally much more reliable than code readers - the VR4 is not ODB2 compliant and often code readers tell porkies as they interpret the codes incorrectly. Glad things are progressing though!
